Las Fotos que Atesoramos

Diana PhotoLas fotos mas atesoradas y que más queremos ocultar, normalmente cobran un valor increible, el valor de lo prohibído, no sabemos realmente si es por la intimidad que muestran o por que revelan la humanidad y simpleza de alguien, que a pesar de pertenecer a una élite no es más que otro ser humano en el mundo. Son estas imágenes que muestran nuestra fragilidad y vulnerabilidad las que controlamos con más cuidado. Qué tipo de imágenes atesoramos?

The Magic of St Felipe Neri Square

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is one of the most beautiful places we visit in barcelona, and to say the less, it has its own magic touch. This time our group experiences the fabulous fall of hundreds of yellow petal while a violinist performed in the middle of the square. The tall threes, the light and the ambiance that you can breathe here, is amazingly peaceful for a square located downtown Barcelona. It is amazing a brutal murder was film here for the movie, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, based on the novel by Patrick Suskind.

¿Sabes lo que es un Time Lapse?

Esta maravillosa secuencia de fotos tomada en la Montaña del Teide en islas Canarias, se puede lograra haciendo un uso programado de la función de ráfaga en los modos semi automáticos AV o TV.

La sensación es similar al video, sin embargo el intervalo de disparo es programado en algunas cámara de manera automática y en otras se debe hacer de manera manual. una increíble experiencia!

Trabajando las Secuencias

Una de las cosas mas interesantes de la fotografía urbana es la cantidad de situaciones y personajes que se ven en una salida de 3 horas. Estuvimos la mañana del sábado en la Barceloneta, la zona de playa junto al imponente hotel W en Barcelona y a pesar de ser aun febrero casi marzo, la verdad es que el paseo tenia tanta vida, gente y situaciones que la mayoría estuvo practicando el tema de velocidad y ráfaga todo el tiempo. la ráfaga nos permite comenzar a entender la forma como se construyen los hechos, las relaciones entre personajes y lugares y a aprender a intuir las secuencias. Cosas tan simples como el movimiento de una ola o el paseo de un gato, al analizarlos nos cuentan muchas historias y nos permiten agudizar la mirada. Cosas a tener en cuenta, la velocidad por supuesto, el AI servo en el enfoque y la composición.

Urban Photography Summer Course Completed

For three weeks on Tuesday and Thursday our urban photography course took place last July.

This time 19 people enjoyed the city trough their cameras and learned a little more about how to observe, capture and frame urban life in Barcelona.
Some of the participants were already skilled amateurs interested in getting better images and some others were beginners with compact cameras, who today were asking advice about the new camera they want to buy.

It is always a pleasure to notice people learning things they like and see them being capable of getting rid of the fear of touching buttons and changing settings in their cameras. I am always happy to get to the last session, see the results and hear them talking about apertures, composition and better colors.

For me, the best session was held last Tuesday, when visiting La Boqueria market. They were starting to understand the need for observation, How to control the impulse of shooting without thinking but thinking and observing before pushing the button. We were there, looking for moments or situations that may catch our attention. But looking for this type of things never work. The way to find them, was staying still for a while and observing everything that happened around us, like being fully conscious of that place and that time. Only then, lots of incredible characters and situations showed up.

Looking at the pictures the group took, I certainly got to know them a little bit better…..
These were only 12 hours to short time to learn a lot but a lot of time to get closer.
